Smith Oirli Make Sacrifice!.
Mr. E. G. McGilton has t tetter
from her daughter, Miss Eleanor Mc
Gilton, from Smith college telling of
the patriotic wave, as well at the sac
. nficial streak affecting the Smith
girls. "The girls are simply bursting
.with patriotism," she writes. Last
Friday, after an appeal made, for
prisoners of war, the college girls
pledged themselves to give $8,500 to
the relief fund after Easter. Many of
the eastern girls of great means
pledged large sums, but the majority
of girls on allowances are making
many real personal sacrifices in order
to make their pledges.
"It is not an uncommon sight now
' to see bruised knuckles on the girls'
hands, since a number of them are
washing their own blouses to save
the laundry bills," writes Miss Mc
Gilton. .

Feeding the Growing Child
i During the Second Year
(This is the first of series of arti
cles furnished by the United States
commissioner of health. The articles
will appear once week).
Much of the illness and suffering
among babies commonty attributed to
the "second summer" or to teething
is actually due to errors In feeding.
The baby s delicate digestive mechan
ism, accustomed to dealing only with
milk, cannot all at once undertake
the task of adjustment to a varied diet
of solid foods, but must be strength
ened by the gradual addition of new
foods until the organs are trained to
more complicated operations. The
safe rule for feeding the baby is to
add but one new food at a time to
his dietary; to watch carefully the ef
fect of each one and to withdraw it
and return to the simpler diet at the
first sign of trouble, ihese rules are
particularly important in summer,
when a baby is more readily upset.
The following list shows the day's
meals for a baby in his second year:
T a. m., milk, awlebaek, toait or drltd
bread. -
S a. m., orange Julca.
10 a. m cereal, cup of rfllk. ,
S p. m., broth, meat, vegetable, stale
bread, baked apple.
S p. m., cereal, milk, toaat or bread,
10 p. m., milk (may be omitted.
Milk At this time the baby should
be taking about one quart of milk in
twenty-four hours; part of this may,
be poured over the cereal,
Cereals Oatmeal should be cooked
three hours, with a little salt in the
water. It should be served without
sugar or with a very little only. The
lighter cereals should be cooked at
least an hour. '
Breads Bread for young children
must have been thoroughly baked and
should beuite dry when used; that
is, at least two days old. Tender toast
is made by cutting thin slices from
such a loaf and allowing them to dry
still more, then toasting them to a
delicate brown over a quick fire. Toast
thus made is crisp all the way through
and may be used in many ways. Many
children will, like to eat it broken
into bits in broth or milk. Hot breads
and biscuits, griddle cakes and muf
fins are not suitable for young chil
dren. Fruit The chjld may have a small
portion of baked apple or prunes once
a day in addition to his morning feed
ing of orange juice. The apple should
be baked very tender, and all the skin,
seeds and hard parts should be re
moved. Prunes should b very care
fully washed, soaked alt night, then
cooked until very tender with very
little sugar. A small portion of the
strained pulp may be given instead of
apple, and the juice may be used also.
Meat The child may have about a
tablespoonful of scraped meat, or a
soft boiled or coddleM egg once a day.
Beef, broiled, boiled or roasted, the
tender part of a lamb chop or the del
icate meat of chicken or fish may be
used. All meat should be scraped or
minced very fine, as no child of this
age can be trussed to chew it prop
erly. 1 "
Vegetables A small portion of
some properly cooked green vege
table like spinach or tender string
beans may be given. Such vegetable j
should be fresh. They should be
cooked, then drained and mashed or
strained through a colander.
